When Things Break

“when things break, it’s not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. it’s because a little piece gets lost — the two remaining ends couldn’t fit together even if they wanted to. the whole shape has changed.”
― David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

“Please don’t be overly sober with your precious wings; it’s your addiction to freedom that makes me think that I too can defy gravity.”― Curtis Tyrone Jones

Quote to ponder….

If you have made serious mistakes, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down. ~Mary Pickford

Flag Day
June 14, 2020

“The American flag doesn’t give her glory on a peaceful, calm day. It’s when the winds pick up and become boisterous, do we see her strength. When she unfolds her hand, and shows her frayed fingers, where we see the stretch of red-blood lines of man that fought for this land. The purity of white stripes that strips our sins, and the stars of Abraham’s covenant, broad in a midnight blue sky. The rights our forefathers established. As it waves high in the currents of freedom, where the Torch of Liberty shines over the sea, does she give meaning to unity. When we strive as one nation, or when it drops half-mast, to a fallen soldier.”― Anthony Liccione
